In man dselect, section BUGS, it says:
dselect doesn't handle "Recommends:"
field very well, and doesn't understand
"Replaces:" at all.
Can anyone elaborate on any of this, so that
one knows what to look-out for and possibly
rectify, when using dselect?
In regards to the "Recommends:" part, the
meaning may be simply that, unlike apt-get,
dselect brings-in "recommended" packages by
default. But this is hardly a bug (if not
actually the better action in most cases),
i would have thought.
